WELLNESS PLACE GOES PINK FOR OCTOBER
In honor of “Breast Cancer Awareness” month, Wellness Place is going all pink this October with many events to bring awareness and support our mission of providing FREE support to cancer patients and their families in North Central Washington.
Tuesday, October 8th 5:00pm-close - Icicle Brewing’s “1 in 8 IPA” Special Beer Release
Join the Wellness Place at Icicle Brewing Company in Leavenworth for the new release of their “1 in 8 Fresh Hop IPA” beer. Owner, Pam Brulotte, along with her long-time friend Shelly (and owner of CLS Farms) are both breast cancer survivors and have collaborated on this special brew, because 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. A donation of $1 per pint of the “1 in 8 IPA” and 25% of that evening’s sales will go to the Wellness Place in Wenatchee and the Wellness House in Yakima, both non-profit organizations with a mission in supporting cancer patients and their families.
